Made of driftwood harvested from the sea, the Java Joglos and treehouses are completely sensitive [6] to both their cultural and ecological context. All of the palaces are outfitted with King sized beds, en suite showers, bathrooms, and Balinese day beda, while the treehouses have been decked out with neutral furnishings.

Much of the furniture was hand crafted [7] using only locally-sourced wood, though some of the facilities have been decorated with high-quality brand name furniture such as Louis Vuitton. Don’t expect to rough it at Pulau Joyo. Although it’s possible to get lost in the verdant greenery surrounding the resort, or to drift away on the South China Sea, the resort is no hippy haven. Instead, guests can expect top-notch food and wine in an environment that is in harmony with its awe-inspiring surroundings.
